    Superhuman: Iceman

    At first glance Dutchman Wim Hof is an average, affable guy, yet he is capable of extraordinary acts. Known as the "Iceman" due to his ability to control his core body temperature in extreme conditions, Superhuman: Iceman follows Hof as he trains Vice correspondents Matt Shea and Daisy-May Hudson in his meditation technique in an attempt to prove that anyone is capable of exercising mind over matter with the same level of aplomb.

    Shea and Hudson travel to Amsterdam, where they learn more about Hof and spend two weeks preparing for a scantily-clad hike up Poland's frigid Mount Sniezka. They join Hof for a group training session, where participants are coached in a breathing technique that typically results in an intense emotional release. Hof explains that by unlocking these subconscious responses it ultimately allows the individual to regain control over their body, and therefore their life as a whole. "I do not fear death," Hof explains to the filmmakers. "I fear not to live fully."

    A single father of four who lost his wife in 1995, Hof channeled his grief into a meditative practice that eventually led to his claiming the world record for remaining submerged in ice for almost 2 hours without any change to his core body temperature. Scientists question how it is that Hof can exhibit so much control over physical systems that are typically involuntary. Does he have a higher level of brown fat in his body? Can he secrete a specific hormone at will? Or is it really a form of meditation that allows him to control his ability to endure extreme cold?

    Devoted to using his body as a sort of physiology lab, Hof happily participates in research studies to furnish hard proof of his ability to moderate his adrenaline levels and immune system. Hof's motivation to back his skills with scientific evidence stems from a desire to avoid instilling false hope in anyone. He is not a miracle worker, though his feats of endurance may seem miraculous.

    Superhuman: Iceman is an inspirational profile of a charming and charismatic man, who is not only admirable but relatable despite his irregular abilities.

    No one person can ever change the truth, but the truth, once learned, can and will change the person

    You must be the change you wish to see in the world when you are through changing, you are through

    two hours monks in Tibet do it for weeks the mediation technique also means you do not require food or water live on air (chi or prana)

    Tibetan Lhama Yoga - Sunyata Saraswati

    Tibetan Lhama Yoga
    by Sunyata Saraswati

    Wonderful ancient practices, illustrated step-by-step.

    Lhama Yoga developed out of the Indian Tantric system called Vishnu Yoga (Union with the Preserver), the healing aspect of Tantric. It is a special system to activate the power centre in the human body, located in the Solar Plexus or Adhra Chakra. The system of techniques involves dynamic yoga postures, breathing exercises, meditations, visualizations and rituals. This yoga has been taught in India for over 5,000 years.

    In the 4th century A.D., tantric Guru Padmasambhava Rimpoche took the science to Tibet and renamed it Tummo Fire (Yoga of the Inner Psychic Heat). Later, he transmitted the science to Tilopa. Several transmissions occurred as time passed.

    Lhama yoga is a very vigorous, rigorous yoga. It produces Tummo Heat. The energy can be used for spiritual enlightenment.
    This practice is for people in good physical shape. Cannot practice with heart conditions, high blood pressure, aneurisms, etc.

    Malc, this was so wonderful and beautiful to see. What is it that we cannot do? I think there is much more to us than meets the eye. Thanks for sharing.

    Whatever is true. Whatever is noble. Whatever is right. Whatever is lovely. Whatever is admirable. Anything of excellence and worthy of praise. Dwell on these things. Jesus Christ (I agree)
